A little gardening.

We live in a condo, therefore we have to garden in containers.  Last year we didn't do too bad with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and strawberries.  This year we're switching things up a bit and adding beans, peas, onions, and potatoes.  Here is what we have done so far:

These planters are actually empty Tidy Cat's buckets.  Hubs painted them green to match our existing planters, and then drilled some holes in the bottoms for drainage.  We use Miracle Grow Organic garden soil. 

The plants are Kentucky Bush beans that I started in starter pots in my bedroom window.  I kinda waited too long and their roots went all crazy, but I think they will be just fine in these super awesome upcycled planters. 

And this is my "Pea TeePee".  So proud of this.  I just used some bamboo stakes and tied them with some waxed hemp twine.  I made the ladders for the sugar snap peas to grow up on out of the same twine.
